• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

The plan calls for it to become a Smartzone system in the "near future". Keep in mind it is a government project and many of them fall behind schedule. There are many sites for this system but most of them are not even turned on. As for the effect on monitoring, units that are using a given talkgroup at a given time will only be heard on repeater sites where one of their units is active. In other words there will be no simulcasting of all transmissions on the system among the primary sites as there is now. So if your location is far away from a system site active with the given talkgroup you will probably not hear it unless you have programmed all the control channels for all the sites used within the greater Las Vegas valley. This assumes that you can hear all the sites from your location.
We shall just sit and wait. Personally, I ilke the simulcast system we have now.

If you want to see a complete listing of all their sites and frequencies for each take a look at the Southern Nevada Scanner Book 5th Edition. It lists all of them so I decided some time ago to program all the sites into one radio. From time to time I listen to them to see if any more are active. It is an easy way to stay on top of the situation. As I said before I hope they stay with simulcast on the major sites for some time to come. Happy listening.
